The Rundown: Emory takes charge of the convoy and a surprise return will reveal a new threat.

In the wake of losing his sister Val, Emory is in charge of Sundog Convoy and trying to save the lives of his friends by moving them to a nearby observatory that has a way to protect them from the growing number of shades that are attacking their convoy.

When they finally reach safety, they are greeted by a changed Val who has someone with information about where they need to go. After learning the truth and how dangerous their mission is, they go for Eos. A trip that will bring them face to face with a new threat in the form of a familiar face.

The Story: Snyder crafts a story that not only brilliantly attracts new readers, but continues the story from a new perspective while keeping the same adrenaline fueled action and stakes that make me enjoy this series. The story is filled with great action and thrills as well as heart. I love both the reunion of the characters and the odds they are facing. The story has a fantastic narrative build up that culminates in an awesome surprise cliffhanger that has me excited for what’s next.

The Art: Tony S. Daniel delivers some beautifully detailed and exciting art that gives the reader the sense of the movement and action of the characters as well as brilliantly crafts a visual environment that I loved.
